Jill Weinberg

Jill Weinberg is an Assistant Professor Sociology whose research/teaching lies in the areas of law/deviance, sports, and gender. She received a PhD from Northwestern University, MA from University of Chicago, and JD from Seattle University. Specializing in law in everyday life, her research examines how ordinary people advocate to decriminalize particular behaviors (e.g., recreational marijuana). Jill spent extensive time traveling between France and Morocco and looks forward to discussing the relationship between the countries, Morocco’s influence in the global arts (especially the Rolling Stones, her favorite!) and current issues of sustainability.
